Blogger of the Week: Onward Hoe!

Today’s Blogger of the Week is Beth from Onward Hoe! 

How old is your blog or long have you been blogging?
I’ve been blogging since the spring of 2004. My early posts were mostly thoughts on spirituality, Scripture, and community league hockey. Then I backpacked around Europe and used the blog as a means of mass communication, and after that, it became largely about funny things that happened to me. Now it sort of encapsulates all of those things (minus the hockey).

What made you choose the name of your blog?
Onward Hoe! has had many names and faces. I can’t remember any of them at the moment, but I know the name was changed several times before “Onward Hoe!” was settled upon for its insinuation that forward motion was to be ever a priority, and for the word “hoe.” (For more information about that, see my FAQ page.)
The tag line, “Moving on and settling down…all at once,” means that whether I’m moving on from one location to another, or from one immature mindset to one better suited to adult life, or from one giddy crush to another giddy crush, I am always settling down more and more into who I truly am. And perhaps some day, I’ll actually settle down in a place and make it my home. But not yet.

Why do you blog and what do you love about blogging?
Basically, I blog for three reasons:
1. If I don’t, my mom starts to worry (even though I generally talk to her several times a week).
2. I’m pretty narcissistic and like to listen to myself talk.
3. My life is funny. It just is.

What are a few of your favorite posts on your blog

Are you married?  If so, how long?
Not yet, but if you know anybody, I’m open to set-ups. Here‘s my list of requirements. 

Do you have children?  If so, how many?
Step 1: Date.
Step 2: Boyfriend.
Step 3: Fiance.
Step 4: Husband.
Step 5: Baby.
I am currently on Step 0.

What is your favorite movie?
I have several. A Mighty Wind, Once, The Sound of Music, Everything Is Illuminated. Those are just a few.

What is your favorite band or musician?
This is tough. I’ve been listening lately to a lot of Adele, Sara Bareilles, Giorgia, Rachael Yamagata, Thad Cockrell and Roman Candle.

What is your favorite food?
They seem like such simple questions, don’t they? Ok, so I’m mostly vegan, so that narrows down my options significantly, and yet there are STILL so many delicious things out there! Singapore Mei Fun, pizza marinara (crust, sauce, oregano, basil, garlic, olive oil), burritos, maple-walnut cupcakes, etc.

What is your favorite candy?
I don’t discriminate.

What else should readers know about you?
I probably want to give you a hug. Whoever you are. Probably.
